Dear Diary, March 26
Vacation is just around the corner. Dot, Gen, and I went for a hike
Saturday. We got lots of wild flowers and twice as many mosquito bites.
Catherine and I went to the special assembly today. It was very interest-
ing. Major Schoof of the Canadian Mounted Police addressed us, and showed
us some of his weapons and armour besides several mounted skins that he
got in the wilds of Africa.

The vacation is all over, but now the long summer one is ahead. I
went visiting and had a wonderful time. My kodak bill was much too high.

ney Ellsworth came and spoke to the assembly on Game Preservation. He
showed us a film and I knew the man who made it. Ruth said the Juniors '
had the same program. i . '

were several added attractions. The Senior Glee Clubs sang and the or-
chestra played various selections.

S At last it is March! Not so very long until Easter vacation! Today
we observed Arbor day in the assembly hall. Mr. Littlejohn, a naturalist,
came and spoke to us about birds. He showed us several fine specimens.
The program was interesting and I enjoyed it. After school I met LaVon
and she said that the Junior Assembly was the same.
Dear Diary, March 15
I almost forgot to write, I have been so busy. I couldn't miss this
assembly though, because it is,a special one. Mr. Paul Pitman, nBig Broth-
eru of KPO, came and spoke to us. He was an ideal speaker with a lot of
personality. Pearl Frick danced, and Jimmy Gallon sang. I wish all the
assemblies were on this order. The Juniors enjoyed the same program.
Dear Diary, ' March 20

lunch and to a show. Genevieve called me, and we went to see Gobweb Kings

some other juveniles.. Jesse Smith played a Xylophone solo, and the Bur-
bank orchestra was an added attraction. We enjoyed the program.

class. The Juniors all enjoyed it thoroughly.
Dear Diary, ' n May 15
C Today was another big day. Our class, the H9y', presented the play
nSeventeen.V fl hope everybody enjoyed it, but I am unable to express my
opinion. That is the hard part of being in a play--one can't see himself
as others see him. '
Dear Diary, ' May 29
5 Today is Field Day. I wonder why the weather is always so hot on
this day! Many different activities are on the program. The P. T. A. had
the cafeteria for a food sale. Later--School is almost over! This was my
last Field Day at Burbank. Gen and I are going swimming to cool off, To-
night there was a Spring Festival Dance in the auditorium. I am glad that
I didn't miss it. '
Dear Diary,- June 4
It won't be long now! Summer is coming. Gen and I played Ping-Pong
yesterday. I hunted up old clothes and a bathing suit last night. To-
night is graduation for the H9 classes. I think that I enjoyed this the
best of all this term.
Dear Diary, June 5
Today we got our honors and awards in the assembly. My duties as a
Wizard Editor are all over. I certainly have enjoyed the position. I
have had a good time at Burbank and really hate to leave it. This after-
noon Gen and I sang, UGood Times are Gomin'u so much that we wore it out.
The great open spaces are calling, and ------ Well Diary, I'll be with
you again in the middle of next August.
